Doch für uns gibt es kein Klagen, ewig kann´s nicht Winter sein
Einmal werden froh wir sagen ”Heimat, Du bist wieder mein”
Dann ziehen die Moorsoldaten
NICHT MEHR mit dem Spaten ins Moor
[But for us there is no complaining, forever may not be winter’s
Once we are happy to say “home, you’re mine”
Then pull the bog soldiers
NO LONGER into the mud with a spade]
You know I’m already far beyond tired of posting about Newtown and about the gun control “conversation” the far left is cramming down our throats. I want desperately for the media moment to pass, for the national attention span to blip and then to move on to something else. But it doesn’t look like that is going to happen this time. I think this is the wet dream moment of the Left, when they do their best to make their delusional fantasy a tyrannical reality. So we’re in the fight of our lives, and from that I will neither retreat nor surrender. And so in turn I must continue to slog through the mud, marching and turning continuously to face the moving goalposts.
We are the peat bog soldiers
We’re marching with our spades
The good news is that I am not alone, and along the way I discover other voices, other truths, and other views that parallel my own. And some of those, whether new or whether drawn from history, are well worth listening to. And so I post them.
Let’s look at what’s really going on here.
Now, there’s this about cynicism, Sergeant. It’s the universe’s most supine moral position. Real comfortable. If nothing can be done, then you’re not some kind of shit for not doing it, and you can lie there and stink to yourself in perfect peace
Miles Vorkosigan, Borders of Infinity, by Lois McMaster Bujold
This is why the Left hates guns with a screaming passion. If you and I can use a gun to make the world a safer place, then so can they. Yet people like Rosa Gill are too scared to take any responsibility for their own safety or for the safety of the children in their class. Rather than confront their own cynicism and cowardice they loudly proclaim that YOU are the problem. They demand that we accept that NOTHING can be done to cover up for the fact that they know in their hearts that THEY are too scared to lift a finger to defend their children.
We know what the Principal of Sandy Hook Elementary did. We know that she paid with her life for our calculated decision to ban her and people like her from carrying a gun. She probably never even thought of it before that fateful day. She might have even been violently against guns. But I want you to imagine that you had the ability to stop time 2 seconds after she realized what was going on in her school. If you had the ability to stop time, offer her a gun, and tell her how to use it against the killer, do you honestly think she would have turned you down? Can you imagine her saying “nope, no guns. I’d prefer that the children died and I die with them?”
They do seem to be frothing at the mouth over this thing huh. Well, I guess we knew that pResident Clown Shoes was going to make this play sooner or later this term so lets just wring that sucker out and see whats floating around in the petty,childish heads of them there Democrats. Out to be a HOOT!!!
Hmm, I rather like Bujold as a writer but do be forewarned she has her moonbat moments at times too. She’s *mostly* libertarian, but not entirely so.
Never forget that these crapweasels screaming - ‘it’s for the children’ - are the exact same ones who want abortion, live babies born after abortion allowed to die and abortion up to birth for all, paid for by taxpayers.
The vile hypocrisy is stunning.
